WELCOME TO KINDERGARTEN - GRADE 5

Our curriculum this year will continue with our values-based approach incorporating an innovative curriculum Passport to Peoplehood.  This curriculum focuses on Jewish diversity, identity, and shared values as well as racial justice. Our educational experience for Kindergarten through Grade 5 emphasizes that our children and families are part of a larger multi-faceted world that can be supported and nurtured by Jewish values and experiences.  We believe that creating a strong partnership with parents is a key element that leads to an enriching experience for students and families and invite you to contact us at any time.
